At Oasis Coffee & Vending, we take great care in selecting wholesale coffee beans that pass the taste and sustainability check. But before we list our favourites, let’s take a look at the different roasts available for your consumers!
What Different Coffee Roasts Are Available?
Light Roast Coffee
Light roast wholesale coffee beans are the ‘least roasted’, meaning that they retain more of the unique flavours and characteristics of the origin farm. They tend to be floral, fruity and sweet in flavour, with a light body and little-to-no bitterness.
Medium Roast Coffee
Medium roast coffee beans still feature most of the unique characteristics of their origin farm, but they present a smoother flavour profile. They tend to be sweeter, reflecting the flavours of honey or caramel, and slightly bitter.
Dark Roast Coffee
Dark roast wholesale coffee beans are least characterised by their origin. With acids and exotic notes smoothed out, they present a darker sweetness similar to chocolate or molasses. They’re slightly spicy and earthy, with a heavy body.
If you’re unsure which roast to go for, we’d advise selecting a medium. The most popular on the market today, they’re suitable for coffee connoisseurs and beginners.
Wholesale Coffee Beans Or Instant Powder?
When choosing between coffee beans and instant coffee, freshness and storage, convenience and control, budget and equipment are all factors that will affect your decision.
Whole beans, for example, will result in a fresher tasting cup closer to the standards of a barista. Instant coffee, however, is more convenient.
Coffee beans last longer than instant powder, but are more expensive to purchase initially. And though beans will give you more power over the flavour of your coffee, instant coffee is ultimately simpler to use.
To make your decision, first examine your coffee making apparatus. If you’ve invested in a bean to cup vending machine, you’ll need to purchase wholesale coffee beans. If you’re working with a filter machine or kettle, however, instant powder must be purchased.
If you’re yet to invest in a vending solution, then explore the available space in your commercial setting alongside your budget before making a decision.
